consett gb / unknown charge

1 WI, United States Review updated:

I had a charge submitted to my credit card totaling $38.87 and I have no idea what this is from or for. I have not used this card in over two months for anything. The reference number for the charge was 2554698dwae8q6ken and the transaction description is www.achbyweb.com consett gb. I called the card and they have no idea where it originated from and need to know where it originated from to stop all other charges. Please advise or I will submit my next complaint to the identity theft department.

    1) Notify your bank,
    2) call the 800 number associated with the charge.
    3) Select the option which allows you to talk to an agent. In my case it was option 2 - having difficulties with the customer service webiste.
    4) DO NOT give them anything other than the last 4 digits of your CC & your name. They wanted first 6 & last 4, they only got the last 4.
    5) After they located the charge - which they wouldn't identify and I said it was fraudulent, they said they would cancel the "subscription" and credit my account. I then asked for their business name and mailing address so that I could notify my bank. I also advised them that if I did not see a credit on my account within 7 business days I would notify the credit card company of the continued fraud. Within minutes of hanging up I received 2 emails notifying me of the cancellation of a to a porn site I have never heard of, and then another email indicating that my credit card wold be credited. Time will tell - they also signed the emails as "First Contact Advantage Customer Service" (firstcontactadvantage.com) Seems to be Panama based, though the individual I was speaking to seemed to have a southern US acent.

    I had the same charges and looked into it. My guess is most of the people complaining on this site are male. It's a porno site.

    I didn't think my transaction went through, but it obviously did.

    I just started to get these charges as well I am male but definate not into porn of any kind. I did call the 800 number to find out what this is. That did say that would refund only the most recent charge. I was hit for 39.95 last Thursday and 49.95 last night. When I called it was not my email address on file or my name. I really think this is a credit card fishing scam be careful.

    Basically the same complaint as others one charge 06/09 40.31 and another charge of 30.22 on 6/16 I received absolutely nothing for these charges. Porn site for sure. I never authorized anyone to deduct any money from my account., And never observed any porn. Was inititially contacted on Skype. would really like to see them return my money and review their business practices. Pretty lucrative business. total scam in my opinion. Would like follow up information if possible. A total of 70.53 owed.

    My credit card was charged $9.99 on September 02, 2014 by CRIVEN.com Consett GB. In order for me to be able to close the account with them I am required to provide my credit card information, my full name and a subscriber ID. They refuse assist to assist me without providing my credit card information. I highly suspect that my credit card information has been received by CRIVEN CONSETT GB fraudulently either by the Lifelock App breath or the Target Department Store breath. I have filed a police report and reported the unauthorized use of my credit card to the Federal Trade Commission, and my credit card company.

    I recently had a charge made to my statement of 39.95 from pmtalert.com. I called and found it was from a porn site. One I would never pay for porn. Two I have a boyfriend if I want some sex ill go to him for it. Fortunately they have set up to refund me. They have 48 hours before report them for fraud and sue for damages.

    I did sign up for access to one site because it said "this is for age verification only; your credit card will not be charged." The next day I was hit for $19.95. When I contacted the website of the charge (PGMJOINS.COM) to ask about the charge, I received no reply. Then the other day I was hit for two more charges, $28.86 and $49.95, from two other websites (INVFEES.COM and CLEARAMT.COM). As you all have mentioned, the connection between all three is "CONSETT GB."

    Postscript to my story: I discovered an email in my spam folder. It did identify (albeit underhandedly) the three websites I mentioned. Although the "age verification" story was a bald-faced lie, the email did mention free trial periods and afterward I would be hit with charges from all three websites (although I had only consciously joined one) until I cancelled them. To dispel the confusion over "CONSETT GB, " Consett is a town in Great Britain (hence the "GB"). If I ever again join another porn or questionable website, I will use a prepaid card with only enough money on it for one "hit."
